I hadnt heard of this show before last night, but a buddy of mine turned me on to it. Its about Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant sending one of their friends Karl (said Idiot) around the world to visit the 7 Wonders. He has very little knowledge of anything outside of England and judges everything he sees based on preconceived stereotypes. During each excursion Gervais calls him to check up on him and make fun of him frequently. This show is pretty funny and its basically the opposite of all the jetsetter shows on the Travel channel. Ive only seen one episode where Karl visits China. In the US it airs on Discovery Science.
